article explores the unique contexts of two specialized drama education programs that offer
adolescents from twelve to eighteen years of age the chance to create, perform, and appreciate
works of art. Describing these two contexts helps to clarify how their respective missions support
these young people in affirming their identities and constructing their world views. The drama
program offered at La Maison Jaune, located in Quebec City, Quebec, allows students to explore
the meaning of their experience of the creative process. The Centre d’Excellence Artistique De La
Salle in Ottawa, Ontario, places drama training in a societal context where the educational practices
contribute to artistic renewal and to the collective imagination.
